Pelvic Health Services
Abdominal, bowel/bladder, and pelvic floor dysfunction can occur across the spectrum of life in men, women, or children. These issues although common, can be difficult to talk about and often become largely accepted as normal. Many cases go untreated despite the evidence that strongly indicates that physical therapy is an effective treatment option. Our pelvic health providers take a holistic and integrative rehab approach that goes far beyond Kegels.
